g. we got reports that a person who had been shot in a car was then driven here to john muir medical center in concord. this is the second shooting in the same area. highway 4 around the pittsburg- bay point area since saturday night. so a disturbing little trend that we need a lot more information on this morning. this is in the area of san margo boulevard and highway 4 at about midnight last night when officers blocked off the area to collect evidence. now, from what we understand, at least one car was hit by bullets and then the driver headed here to john muir medical center in concord. we found this car here in the parking lot. we don't know the condition of the person who was brought here but it all does sound very similar to a shooting on highway 4, same area about 2.2 miles away on saturday night. 20-year-old tomas mendez was killed on his way home from work. someone shot at his car as he was driving eastbound on
6:01 am

6:05 am
look at some of the readings. 56 degrees, i really want to check this one because i want to see how far we have the intrusion of the low clouds and fog this morning. keith rodriguez in san leandro reports mostly cloudy skies. thanks, keith, that's helpful. take a look at that up there. clear skies kathy munch 49 degrees in sebastopol. that falls in line with santa rosa reporting clear conditions at this hour as well in the upper 40s and low 50s. we have a deck of low clouds and fog. it has moved into the bay marching inland. you saw keith's report, at least by a good 25 miles. temperatures from the upper 40s to around the mid-50s. we have right now concord with the south wind at 16. gusts to 24. numbers simple floor yesterday from the 50s, 60s at the beaches, with the sunshine, we'll have the clearing of the skies around the peninsula into the 70s and low 80s jumping up to 86 degrees in morgan hill. 90 in gilroy. around the eastern portion of the bay west winds 10 to 15

6:08 am
bay area airport to allow these ridesharing companies to operate. however, these companies say they will stay away because these new rules are too inconvenient. now, last night the city council approved a one-year pilot program where drivers have to abide by rules similar to those of traditional cab drivers. drivers for companies like uber and lyft will have to get business licenses, pay fees, be subject to inspection, go through background checks and fingerprints. yesterday's vote came after comment at city hall from employees who want some of the airport's business. [ inaudible ] >> reporter: lyft said, airport officials worked for nine months with the ridesharing community to craft an agreement that complies with allstate laws and is good for drivers, passengers and the city of san jose. yesterday's vote overturned those negotiations in less than 48 hours with no public debate."
6:09 am
so these companies say they will not operate here at the airport until the city lifts the fingerprint requirements. if and when these companies finally come to the airport, then the city can finally start collecting more than $600,000 in revenue that they expect. >> does any other airport require drivers to submit fingerprints? >> reporter: no. that's the argument is that sfo doesn't require it and portland doesn't require it. why should san jose? kiet do, kpix 5. today the documentary "batkid begins" will be screened in san francisco where it was filmed about the make-a- wish for a kid who became a superhero for a day. >> i want to be the real batman is his wish. >> because he is my favorite superhero. >> so cute. it was first seen in the bay area at san jose's cinequest film festival. today's screening is at the sundance cinema at 7 p.m. here's a sign of bay area affluents. workers earn close to 50% more

6:15 am
expressed reservations about it. the bill needs 10 of 19 votes to pass the committee. if the bill passes, the legislation signed by governor brown, it would be easier for terminally ill patients to kill themselves. a couple of teenagers are accused of attacking san francisco police officers after allegedly stealing from a clothing store. as andria borba found out, the girls could be part of a gang. >> reporter: in the shadow of the rainbow flag on market street it appears the rainbow girls may have struck again. >> i think it's crazy. >> reporter: at forever21, sfpd says three teenaged girls started shoplifting but officers in the area caught them. >> they all came from different directions, some went around the corner to the other side of the store. but there was a lot. a lot of cops. >> reporter: sfpd says the girls fought back. one officer used his pepper

spray and ended up getting a faceful himself landing in the back of this ambulance. this is video of the rainbow girls tearing through arthur barron on stockton street in december. their m.o. is the same hitting the place with thousands of designer duds as quickly as possible. >> i don't know exactly what happened as far as the girls but if this isn't the first store they have hit, i mean, i'm glad they got it under control. >> andria borba, kpix 5. police arrested two of the three girls on shoplifting charges but they could face more serious charges of battery on a police officer. more police officers will be on the streets of san francisco. the board of supervisors passed an ordinance last night requiring the police department to hire more officer based on the growing population of the city. critics say more officers won't necessarily reduce crime and that money would be better used

[ laughter ] >> we have a big rig in antioch highway 4 westbound at hillcrest in antioch. you can see very slow traffic our sensors picking up traffic down to 30 miles per hour. so just set aside extra time if you normally make this busy commute out of antioch bound for pittsburg. now, we had that accident along 580 in the westbound direction and at one point the chp temporarily shut down lanes. now, lanes are now open. traffic is backed up westbound 580. it's about a quarter mile approaching grand from park boulevard. now, 880 still holding steady with no big problems to report to you as it rolls through the oakland area. so that's a good commute. the bay bridge commute though the metering lights are on. it didn't take much to delay traffic. we had a car that broke down on the bridge. that's been cleared but traffic is backed up through the macarthur maze in oakland.
6:19 am
and the silicon valley commute you're looking at a map of our sensors along 280 where it's still flowing well approaching through downtown san jose. you can expect a pocket of slow traffic for north 101 as you roll through the morgan hill area. that's a look at your "kcbs traffic." now to roberta. it really is a pretty picture. it's our live weather camera. we have a compressed deck of low clouds and patchy fog. it's roughly anywhere between 1,000 and 1300 feet deep at this hour. so far no reports of local airport delays. but i'll keep a watchful eye on that. concord a breeze gusts up to 24 out of the south the same at 16. we have clear conditions in san jose and santa rosa but it's overcast in oakland. over cast at the beaches and bay this morning into the 50s. a few clouds have lingered inland. this is our satellite-radar. and if you look very carefully right about here, as the morning has been progressing i have been noticing the development of that marine
6:20 am
layer but again it's pretty shallow so we will see it wipe away from the beaches today. and everybody will enjoy some ample sunshine. high pressure continues to build into the western states and as it does so we'll see the temperatures soar a big jumpup on thursday into the triple digits for the first time this summer season. but it will be short-lived with cooling taking place by friday. meanwhile, 109 in redding today. 87 degrees in the high sierra where currently we are in the low 40s. it's 56 degrees going up to 60s in monterey bay. 70s in the bay. 70s low 80s around the peninsula and all the way up to 93 degrees inland. west winds 10 to 15. muggy over the weekend. >> thank you. time now 6:20. testing reveals cracked rods on the bay bridge and the project chief engineer says the problem
